I have hope for humanity. Perhaps one day we will finally learn that killing each other on a battlefield is not a way to solve problems. Lest we forget.   *April 25th is ANZAC day in Australia and New Zealand, the day the ANZAC forces landed at Gallipoli in Turkey in WWI. On this day we remember all the people … Read More

Walking bare foot on the beach. On grass. It even has a name, which could only happen in a world where bare foot walking is unusual. Earthing. To stand connected to Earth, such a simple thing, yet so powerful. When we have forgotten who we are, why we are here… when we are lost in a turmoil of conflicting choices, … Read More

The other day I was speaking with someone who talked about a meeting 15 years ago with a well known author who seemed at the time to lack the sensitivity to thank the host or his fellow guests. Even though he has not had further contact, he held this author today in the same light, dismissing him for being ungracious, … Read More

Expansive. That feeling of impossible vastness, were there is no end point. Love. When we open our hearts and feel love then it inhabits the field to infinity. Breaking all our laws of time and space. And that is the point. No examination of love by science will ever reveal its chemistry, its possibility, its creativity, or the way it … Read More

Asking for help doesn’t make us weak. We are born helpless, 100% reliant on the good care of others. Our cultural mythology bent us to consider that the solo heroic journey is the mark of strength. Yet it is entirely impossible to ever enact. Even the hermit in the woods is helped by a billion microbes in the soil as … Read More

Aliveness is nourished by curiosity, not from a place of lack, rather from the delight of discovery and wonder. To engage with life’s mystery, to be genuinely interested in another’s path to here. To step bravely into the new world forged by human ingenuity and emergence, to be present to the pop culture of our youth. Curiosity and adventure are … Read More

Belonging is an inner affair. Our yearning to fit in, find our tribe, feel at home, be a part of something or partner with another will never be fully sated until we find our inner home. We reject so many aspects of our self. Our bodies, our abilities, our family, our perceived lack. We believe that until the mythical “x” … Read More

Disappointment follows the longing for what was not to be. It is natural for us to carry hopes and dreams. Our hopes and dreams have us strive to express the full extent of our capability. We can only give our best. How others participate is not in our control. If we fail our own expectations and we have done our … Read More
